Players step into the shoes of Kait Diaz for the first time who, following the events of Gears of War 4, is trying to come to terms with the death of her mother, unravel the twisted roots of her family tree and deal with her own personal baggage. With 2019’s iteration of the stalwart series, EA appears to have made some bold strides in the right direction, especially when it comes to giving players what they’ve been asking for in terms of game modes and statistical tinkering. Though its single-player campaign isn’t the best in the franchise in terms of story, this is Halo multiplayer combat at its most fun, and anyone that loves playing online with friends will enjoy what the various modes have to offer. You can read our full review of FIFA 20 right here and make sure you’re the best on the pitch using our tips and tricks guide. Check out our Assassin’s Creed Odyssey review diary for more. Xbox One X enhancements truly bring Odyssey’s Grecian world to life, with higher resolution textures, denser crowds, improved depth of field and an overall richer environment – and we’re expecting the next chapter in the series, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, will follow suit.
The name is no coincidence, either; 2007’s Modern Warfare was a landmark entry in the Call of Duty series, and Activision is looking to recreate what made the game of the same name so successful. Forza Horizon 4, the latest game in the series, carries that tradition forward by taking us to the rolling hills of the English countryside and spoiling us with some of the most exotic cars on the planet. The latest addition to the open-world racing title is a testament to the power of Xbox One X enhancements. A franchise that has defined Xbox as a platform for a long time is of course Halo, and Halo 5: Guardians is a worthy addition to the series and our list of the best Xbox One games. And the new setting feels like something of a love letter from Playground Games to rural Britain; charming, idyllic and made for cross-country road trips. The single player campaign even feeds neatly into Battlefield 1’s multiplayer mode which, while familiar, also benefits from the much-needed breath of life that the change in setting gives. Sean jumps in and ends up in a fist fight; the bully goes down hard on a rock just as a police car pulls up and a single officer exits.
Rafe and Krystalle will be laying down the beats for the party, but Grand Poobah Shawn Schuster and I, Seraphina Brennan, will be in attendance as well. While the original Forza titles were about pristine driving skills around perfectly kept tracks, the Horizon series has a penchant for trading paint and isn’t afraid to have you get down and dirty with off-road races from time to time. Kingdom Hearts Cosplay, The Legend of Zelda Cosplay, and Final Fantasy Cosplay are the most prevalence game cosplay titles. Likewise, the DLC will swap out Lightning’s typically over-designed fantasy weaponry in favor of more pragmatic gear: a survivor’s axe and riot shield. Chris seems to have superpowers, much like Max and, apparently, someone in Life is Strange 2. Players’ decisions in the previous games will carry over to the sequel, though developers won’t say exactly how. If the native 4K mode isn’t graphically impressive enough, the new 60fps mode will blow you away with its smooth transitions and its picture-perfect take of every pothole, lavender field and pebble-dash wall in Britain.
Along with its buttery-smooth framerate, Devil May Cry 5 is also presented at a native 4K resolution on One X, which is a huge improvement over the standard Xbox One’s 900p resolution. Just make sure you have the time to play it because there’s over 100 hours of content to enjoy here. You might want to hold off on that, because over the next six weeks you’ll have a chance to get each of those at a discount. I have to say I also really like this new personal loot option for normal and heroic, but I may be biased since it’s giving me Warforged loot left and right. As the first non-Resident Evil title built using Capcom’s RE Engine, the Xbox One X version of Devil May Cry 5 astonishes with its incredibly gorgeous presentation. Though every version of Hideaki Itsuno’s hack-and-slash masterpiece targets 60fps, the Xbox One X version is able to deliver that framerate consistently, making it the ideal way to experience Devil May Cry 5 in a living room setting.
